Brendan O’Neill is editor of spiked, the magazine that wants to make history as well as report it. He is also a columnist for The Big Issue and a writer for the Spectator. Last year he was nominated for the Columnist of the Year Award at the Press Publishing Awards. The Telegraph calls him “one of Britain’s sharpest social commentators”, while the Guardian thinks he is a “sub-Danny Dyer obnoxious intellectual wind-up merchant”. A collection of his essays, A Duty to Offend, was published last year by Connor Court.
